Please bear with me. I created some Oracle account to access their 
binary attic and went throug a testing parcour on my 32 bit system where 
I found out that _something_ must have changed between OOo 3.3 and AOO 3.4:

JRE version		Linux i586 (Ubuntu 10.4, AOO 3.4)
6.0.22			good /which is what I used to use with OOo 3.3
6.0.23			good /don't know about OOo 3.3
6.0.24			good /used to be bad with OOo 3.3
6.0.24(open-jdk)	good /used to be bad with OOo 3.3
6.0.35(latest)		good /used to be bad with OOo 3.3
7.0.4			bad

This is the result for my 64 bit Linux machine:
JRE version		Linux x64 (Ubuntu 10.4, AOO 3.4.1)
6.0.24(open-jdk)	good
6.0.35			good
7.x			bad

So the issue has a clear red line between JRE6 and JRE7.

Hope this helps.
